Who hasn’t dreamt about a romantic Parisian getaway in Autumn? I know, I know, it’s a cliché… but wouldn’t it be nice? The faded light, the warm croissants, the cold sunsets… But for those who prefer travelling off the beaten track, there’s more to France than Paris. That’s why we’ve put up a list of other French destinations just as charming but not so crowded. Continue reading
Have you ever thought that some destinations are better if enjoyed at a certain age? Well, I do think that every age has its destinations. Long exotic journeys are for those years in college and things like tours around Tuscany call for a more mature and slow-paced travellers. Well, we feel that we belong in the latter group, so we’ve been planing a road trip in Tuscany for a while.
It would be nice to spend a few days in Florence breathing art and history. Then we could rent a car and get lost in the famous Tuscan countryside. Eat, drink, relax, repeat. I know is a fantasy that most of us have: Tuscany! It’s almost a brand, a cliché… but wouldn’t it be nice to make it a reality?
Every season has its trends. Also when it comes to travelling. When we think about Autumn we usually picture ourselves in the woods, by the fire place in a cosy rustic retreat or exploring a Central European city. While this sounds completely inviting, sometimes we feel like escaping, experiencing something new and changing your life if only for a few days. All in all, that’s what most of us look for when travelling, isn’t it? Then, why not thinking outside the box?
September is one of our favorite months to travel. High season is over and crowds finally return home. The weather is still nice but milder and every landscape seems quieter, waiting for Autumn to arrive. It’s the perfect time to enjoy a relaxed getaway. Travelling off season has only perks in our books. It’s not about the money, though it helps. It’s about the feelings and experiences: the melancholy of a lonely beach in November or the happiness of those warm first rays of sunshine in an empty little cove in April. The silence of a city like Venice in Winter or a sunset all for yourself in otherwise crowded Mykonos. The sensation of plenitude, loneliness, uniqueness. That feeling of being a traveler more than a tourist. Who doesn’t love it? We certainly do… and it’s a feeling that can be addictive. What about you? Are you off season junkies like us?
